    I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I have many good memories of her and your dad while growing up in the U.P. Church in Ellwood City.

  3. I had Mrs. Moyer as my third grade teacher at North Side School back in the late 60’s. She was a wonderful teacher. We made butter in her class…and ate it on crackers! Over the years, I always enjoyed running into her at the store or out and about. I have thought of her often lately. Such a kind and caring lady. She touched so many lives. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sorry to learn of your mother’s passing! We don’t get the newspaper and I haven’t checked it online for a while so I missed the visitation.
    I remember you, your mother and dad well from Calvin. Your mother was such a gracious lady!
    Do you remember the mission trip to Kentucky so many years ago. I still think of it from time to time.

    May the Holly Spirit bring you comfort in your loss!
